    Scary thought as Foster seems to have a reputation of calling plenty of fouls on bigs and favors wings driving into the lane. Prediction... Roy will be hitting the bench early.
    Yeah, this is potentially a devastating group to assign to this game from our perspective. Almost like the league wants . . . oh forget it.

    Well then no reason to watch then. Might as well send our boys home, we have no chance. Obviously Stern has spoken and so it is done. Well it's been a good season though. if only Stern had given us a decent chance.
    I'm going to be back quoting this again in about 6 hours.

    NBA Flopping Policy states that players aren't fined for accentuating illegal contact. So, if the league determines that Paul fouled Lebron, and that Lebron exaggerated what was illegal contact, that won't be a fine.

    Only a fine if it is manufactured contact, i.e. throwing your head back even if you didn't get hit. In this case, Paul made contact and Lebron dove backwards...gray area. He won't get fined.

    I'm thrilled that Scott "Tim Donaghy called me 134 times between October 2006 and April 2007" Foster is working tonight. /green
    And here I was thinking this was a disaster waiting to happen.

    Thanks for making me realize it's probably worse.

    We need to worry about the 5 heat players on the floor, and not the 3 referees calling the game.

    Try and decipher how the game is being called and adjust accordingly.

    We've come too far to be playing in this big of a game and to be worried about officiating BEFORE the game has even started.
    We're not playing so it doesn't matter what we say

    You be the judge.....

    Foster is the official who received 134 phone calls from disgraced referee Tim Donaghy between October 2006 and April 2007, as originally reported by FOX News. That was the same period during which Donaghy admitted to betting on NBA games. The report said that Donaghy called Foster more than any other ref and that he didn’t call any other official more than 13 times.

    Donaghy’s calls to Foster took place immediately before and after games Donaghy was officiating 54 times.

    The initial report showed the following call log from the day of Dec. 30, 2006:

    10:34 a.m. – Donaghy calls Foster.
    10:35 a.m. – Donaghy calls another referee.
    10:36 a.m. – Donaghy calls [Thomas] Martino, the “middleman” between him and his bookie.
    10:39 a.m. – Donaghy calls Foster.
    5:15 p.m. – Donaghy calls Martino.
    5:23 p.m. – Donaghy calls Martino.
    7 p.m. – Donaghy referees game between the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic. The Magic win in a rout, 97-68.
    8 p.m. – Foster referees a game between the Toronto Raptors and the Memphis Grizzlies in Memphis. The Grizzlies win 110-104. Foster and Donaghy speak 12 minutes after the game.
    11:27 p.m. – Foster and Donaghy speak for at least the fourth time of the day.
    11:38 p.m. – Foster and Donaghy speak for at least the fifth time of the day.

    The records also showed Donaghy making several calls to Foster on the days of games, generally for no more than two minutes.

    The report also said that when Donaghy called Foster, he mostly used the phone that he dedicated to gambling-related phone calls, and the phone calls stopped abruptly when Donaghy said he stopped gambling.

    Wasn't Foster the primary ref responsible for the screw-job we were getting early in Game 2?

    the thing that pisses me off, if in-fact the refs make a questionable call that decides the game, this will happen.

    If Heat win, headline

    "Heat bounce back and knock off Pacers to head to the Finals"

    If Pacers win, headline

    "Questionable call dooms Heat as Pacers advance to their first final appearance since 2000"

    You got that right. It's like the joke about what you call the guy who finished dead last in his graduating class at medical school.

    You just call him "doctor" of course.

    At this point, by any means possible just git 'er done!

    We've already won games in this series that were 5 on 8 . Short of illness, injury or early foul trouble to Hill/George/Hibbert, it's nothing we can't overcome.

    It's too bad the NBA is fixed.

    Honestly. This isn't the worst thing in the world.

    We were going to play 5 on 8 this game. We all know it.

    Foul trouble hurts us, pretty obviously. But a lot of fouls...when the Heat can't get in their offensive flow. Isn't the best thing for us either.

    There's nothing this team can't overcome. Even if it irritates the rest of us.

    I don't pay attention to the odds makers for gambling, but I am willing to bet the Pacers are the underdog. Now if Foster is a gambling man, knowing how close this series has been, wouldn't he be wanting the Pacers to win to maximize his profits?

    Well, here I am. Unfortunately the Pacers were so bad in and of themselves it didn't really matter at all, but they were bad. Not always, mind you, but too often.

    Probably the single most pathetic moment was late in the game when Chris Andersen flops, turns, whined, stared, waited, and then Scott Foster decided to call the foul very late. A lot of flops drew a lot of fouls tonight.

    I also believe that several of the Heat traps would have been called fouls if we try that crap.

    But whatever, it ended up not mattering anyway.

    The two lines in the middle says it all.....I do NOT believe in conspiracy NBA but I rather I believe that what the NBA deems stars/star teams do get preferential treatment. It just disgusts me seeing a complete different way of officiating from game to game in this series. There was a point in the 2nd quarter where Wade launched himself parallel 3 feet into a vertical Hibbert that was called a shooting foul. Absolutely disgusted me.

    Even with the terrible officiating we did not deserve to win with the way we played tonight...BUT there has to be a point when as a Pacer you need to make the foul count! If their calling the game that way - then give them a hard foul or two! Make that foul count!

    I dunno, this game reminded me of Game 3 an awful lot. In that game the Heat were allowed to play much more physical than the Pacers and were rewarded for that physicality. Ken Mauer and Mike Callahan were the officials for that game. Of course Scott Foster was involved in Game 2 of the series and he made some rather ugly calls all through out that game.

    Look the Pacers play horribly on Defense in this Game 7, but lets not pretend the Heat didn't get some home cooking tonight. No one can deny this game was officiated much differently than the other games of this series. They were allowed to get away with alot of grabbing and pushing under the basket, and PG and Hibbert were picking up some very light touch fouls, and questionable calls on Hibberts Verticality.

    Heats Defense was locked in, but its alittle easier to defend when the refs let you get away with hacking and grabbing on Defense.

    I think there is a legit point to be brought up that David Stern got the result he wanted tonight and the officiating crew help his cause.
